Devendra Gupta, against whom a charge sheet has been filed by the Rajasthan's Anti Terrorist Squad (ATS), moved the application before Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Sanjay Bansal, who reserved his order on it till tomorrow.

Gupta alleged that Aseemanand's confessional statement recorded by a Metropolitan Magistrate under section 164 of the CrPC was leaked by the CBI to Tehelka magazine in violation of law.

"The media coverage indicates a well-defined leakage that is authored with a design to insulting the judicial process..... The leakage of court proceedings opened an additional forum of media trial to prejudice the mind of the court in violation of the rights of the accused in custody," his counsel Anupam S Sharma and Sanjeev Nassiar submitted.
